We made a camping trip to SV/PF/GB over father's day weekend, after a nice lunch at No Way Jose's in GB we rode the Roaring Fork Motor Trail back toward SV, with a stop-over about half way for take in the Grotto Falls. The hiking guides all said it was a moderate hike of 2.8 miles round trip, and I agree with their assessment. The trail was nice and wide with plenty of roots and stones to keep you paying attention. And it was uphill, all the way, to the top ...
The following pictures were processed in a new way for me. I used Lightroom v4.1's new ability to handle handle 32-bit files in concert with Photoshop's 'Merge to HDR Pro' option to handle the 3-bracket heavy lifting.
